Race organisers are just so frustrating. I have a place in New York this year but the wife is now expecting with a due date of 3rd November just 3 days before the race. I pleaded with her but to no avail.
So I tried New York Road Runners and they said I could defer but would have to pay the full price again next year. Now here's the annoying bit. I have a qualifying time that would get me a place next year anyway so there is no point at all in deferring. NYRR agreed and said there is no point in deferring.
So I have a place that will not be used yet there are thousands of runners out there who would love to have a go at New York - Crazy!
I also booked hotels for the weekend on a non refundable basis
This baby is costing me a fortune and it's not even arrived yet
